We had great communication with the owners before we travelled, good instructions were given to find & access the villa which we found to be exactly as described & spotlessly clean. There was a lovely 'Welcome basket' & some 'essentials' ready for us. We found the villa very comfortable & well equipped with everything we needed. You could spend hours just looking at the views & night after night the sunset views were stunning - we particularly enjoyed watching the sunset whilst swimming in the FANTASTIC POOL! There were plenty of lovely seating areas & sunbeds to relax on and to eat outside & we loved watching the August Meteor Shower from the sunbeds and having a dip in the pool to cool off before bed. However the aircon in all the bedrooms made sleeping very comfortable. The villa is tucked away up a mountain but with a car we found the area easy to explore visiting Chania, Georgiouploli, Lake Kournas, Agia Marina (where we hired a boat), Rethimno as well as countless beautiful beaches. A highlight was snorkelling at Koutalas Beach! We found eating out very good especially in Kalyves & Almyrida at the beach restaurants. We were made to feel very welcome to this villa & the local managers were helpful - we would definitely recommend staying here!

The villa is exactly as the photos look. The children loved the pool and the inflatables that were there. The location was really good as well with access to the beach. There is a bakery and mini market at the top of the road which was very convenient for us! Also the local restaurants were lovely with amazing views. The walk into the town was a bit much for young children and grandparents combined so we used the excellent taxi service which was reliable and always 5 Euros, well worth it to keep everyone happy! I would recommend this villa to a family and would return ourselves in the future.
